Lesson 10 a comparison of operant and classical conditioning2013

  1. 1. Lesson  10:  Comparing  Operant  and  Classical   Conditioning    
  2. 2. From  last  lesson……………..    Max  is  a  nine-­‐year-­‐old  boy  who  has  learning  difficulties.  A  child   psychologist  is  working  with  Max.  Max  continually  interrupts   their  session  together  by  getting  out  of  his  seat.  The  psychologist   wants  to  teach  Max  to  stay  in  his  seat  for  their  half-­‐hour  session.  a.  Give  an  example  of  how  the  psychologist  could  change  Max’s   behaviour  using  operant  conditioning.  (1  mark)  b.  Using  the  terms  of  operant  conditioning,  explain  how  your   method  will  help  Max  to  learn  to  stay  in  his  seat.  (2  marks)  
  3. 3. The  Answer  is……………  a.  •  Max  could  be  rewarded  with  a  sticker  for  every  five  minutes  he   remained  in  his  seat  (positive  reinforcement)    •  Max  could  be  scolded  when  he  gets  out  of  his  seat  (punishment).  b.  •  the  psychologist  gives  Max  a  sticker  for  every  session  he  does  not  get   out  of  his  seat.  The  sticker  acts  a  positive  reinforcer  to  encourage  the   behaviour  of  staying  in  his  seat  •  the  psychologist  scolded  Max  when  he  tried  to  leave  his  seat.  This   acted  as  punishment,  making  it  less  likely  that  Max  would  repeat  the   behaviour.    Many  students  continue  to  confuse  negative  reinforcement  (which   strengthens  a  response)  with  punishment  (which  weakens  a   response).  
  4. 4. This  lesson………  •  Compare  and  contrast  of  classical  and  operant  conditioning   in  terms  of  the  processes  of  acquisition,  extinction,  stimulus   generalisation,  stimulus  discrimination,  spontaneous   recovery,  role  of  learner,  timing  of  stimulus  and  response,   and  nature  of  response  (reflexive/voluntary)  
  5. 5. Classical  Vs  Operant   Conditioning  
  6. 6. Activities  1)  Scenario  questions  comparing  classical  and  operant  conditioning  2)  Create  a  presentation  of  your  choice  (poster/podcast/drawing/prezi)   that  compares  classical  and  operant  conditioning  in  terms  of:  "   the  processes  of  acquisition  "   Extinction  "   stimulus  generalisation  "   stimulus  discrimination  "   spontaneous  recovery  "   role  of  learnertiming  of  stimulus  and  response  "   nature  of  response  (reflexive/voluntary)
